HRH Harry-UK

Harry’s gang: Who’s who in the Prince’s inner circle – and will Meghan Markle fit in?

harryPrince Harry is just weeks away from marrying American actress Meghan Markle in what will be the wedding of the year. Fifth in line to the throne Harry, 33, has been dating the 36-year-old star, who found fame in the US legal drama Suits, since the summer of 2016. Their whirlwind romance blossomed when they met through mutual friends and the happy couple announced their engagement in November. Ms Markle has presumably met a number of the Prince’s friends since she moved in with him last year, so who will be at the royal wedding, and who is ‘in’ with Harry’s crowd?

Harry’s oldest chums


Tom Inskip and Lara Hughes-Young

Tom Inskip and Lara Hughes-YoungHarry, 32, and renowned party animal Tom Inskip, have been friends since they were pupils at Eton together and are said to be inseparable, with Inskip consistently seen by his side over the years. When the Prince disgraced himself playing naked in a pool in Las Vegas? Skippy was by his side. He was also there when the royal jumped into a nightclub swimming pool in Croatia fully clothed in 2011 and when he was pictured throwing snowballs from a hotel balcony in the same year. Harry was rumoured to be best man at his Jamaican wedding earlier this year. Lara Hughes-Young, Inskip’s flame haired bride, has reportedly been singing Meghan’s praises since they met last year.

Arthur LandonArthur Landon

One of the richest young men in Britain (he inherited £500 million when his father died) Landon is the son of the infamous ‘White Sultan’ Brigadier Tim Landon, who is said to have made his fortune after orchestrating a coup in Oman. Arthur was in Vegas with the Prince, when a naked picture of him was sold after a party in their hotel room, an incident that Landon said put a “dampener” on the rest of the trip.

A friend from Eton, and son of the Queen’s racing manager,  Jake Warren could well be there to watch his old school chum tie the knot. He was also one of Princess Diana’s 17 godchildren and could provide Meghan with an invaluable line to the royal family – or some advice, at the very least.

Guy PellyGuy Pelly

London bar owner and another of Harry’s oldest friends. A former party pal of the Prince, he could probably reveal some-thing to Meghan of her fiancee’s past mischief.

A keen rugby player, Bidwell – a stockbroker – was also on the ill-feted Vegas trip. He is the former boyfriend of singer Katherine Jenkins.
